Jill Law

Welcome Painter Jill Law. She’s a Teacher, Chef, and Interior Designer AND the President of the Dartmouth Cultural Center.

And, for the past seven years, Jill has served as the previous Tour Chair for 3 years and currently, for the past 3 years President of the South Coast Artists, the collaborative group that has been sponsoring the Open Studio Tour for the past seventeen years.  Jill Law, who was also our In-Focus Podcast Number 19 guest, is facing a lot of challenges heading up two local arts organizations plagued by this pandemic.

Being at the helm of this talented group of artists during these difficult times has its challenges which Jill, and the SCA Board of Directors, are addressing daily. This year’s annual Open Studio Tours are tentatively scheduled for August 15 &16 and September 19 & 20, 2020 given the current uncertainty of the Covid-19 Pandemic. 

2020 marks the Seventeenth Annual South Coast Artists Studio Tour. The event, has been traditionally held over two consecutive weekends and includes over 70 exhibiting artists.

Listen in on her conversation as The Artist Index’s host, Ron Fortier delves into the background of the South Coast Artists and the circumstances facing this signature summer event!

The whole concept of The Artists Index and the journey we are embarking on are still in the making and very organic. At this critical time in our country’s history, as we are experiencing and attempting to remain safely at home during the Covid 19 Pandemic, we will continue to podcast assisted by Skype.  If you would like to be a guest or, have a suggestion, please let us know!
